Brief Definition

A ghazal is a type of poem which is meant to express pain and the love that can persist through that pain. It was a popular form of poetry in the 1800s throughout Arabia and South Asia.

The ghazal has roots in Arabic poetic forms and grew in popularity after the birth and rise of the Islamic culture. Structurally, it may resemble a Petrarchan sonnet, but in style, it branches off to a place of its own. The expression of emotional pain and the beauty of love is unique to this form of poetry, and has been celebrated for many centuries.

Ghazal poems are typically constructed with a minimum of five and maximum of fifteen couplets. The range of couplets used depends on the theme and emotional intent of the author. These poems are often written from the point of view of someone whose love can’t be acquired, and they are usually melancholy in tone. 

Ghazal Poem Example

Patriotic Passion

No matter If history be repeated to war or battle, 
Will go back fight and won the medals for chest, 

Neither be retreated or nor give up from battle zone, 
Until I led the combat to conquest, 

For even at the last breath and drop of blood, 
Adhere to delimitation line till the peace and rest, 

And if the essence of mother soil vanished, 
Put forth my brow sweat to saturate this placidity harvest, 

Make them grow, and buoy up with ocean flow, 
So, this land become the mighty, at his best, 

Encompass whole fragrance of brotherhood and sodality, 
Endeavor for honor, tranquility, and resurrect, 

After all now I can take deep puff and pass away, 
Attribute this patriotic poem to countryman sanest,.

And I Shahid pray, supplicate and invocate, that you, 
May be the place of harmonious, pleasant zest.
